Do you know how to make breadsticks? These easy, almost-famous breadsticks are a soft fluffy recipe you will love to make. Here in Southern Utah, we have a pizza place that makes some bread sticks very similar to these. Have you ever gone into a restaurant and thought to yourself, I wonder how they made these. Well, I had to know what kind of wood sticks they used to make the breadsticks twist around and not catch on fire in the oven.

The server explained this really long complicated way they prepare their sticks in order to make their delicious breadsticks. I have such a short attention span I think, so I started picturing how I was going to prepare my own sticks for baking. I bought these sticks: Fox Run Bamboo Skewers, 12-Inch

The next day I mixed up my bread dough (recipe below) and took my bamboo sticks out of the bag and started wrapping the dough around them. No prep, just do it! This is how they look twisted for the first rise.

These are ready to bake. I just slathered them with melted butter, garlic, parmesan cheese, and dill weed. Just like having hot bread out of the oven to make a meal special. Having these breadsticks is a delicious addition to most any meal. I love them with soups, pizza, salads, and many other dinner entrees. If you want a different flavor just drizzle with melted butter before baking and then dip them in your homemade honey butter. There are so many different variations you can try.  Be adventurous and try lots of new things, you’ll be pleased with the results.

Course: Bread
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10 people
Ingredients
  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 4 teaspoons SAF instant yeast
  • 4 teaspoons dough enhancer (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6-7 cups of bread flour
Instructions
  1. Instructions:
  2. Place all of the ingredients in order into your mixing bowl. Be careful with the eggs not to add the warm milk too quickly or you will have scrambled eggs. Add half of the flour and keep adding the rest of the flour until the bread dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let rise the first time about an hour. Punch the dough down. Roll the dough out on the counter and use a pizza cutter to make 1/2 inch strips to wrap around the bamboo sticks. Hang the skewers of twisted bread sticks over 9 by 13-inch pans. Cover with greased plastic and let rise one more time about an hour or until double the size. Before placing the breadstick in the oven lather with butter, Parmesan cheese & dill weed if desired. Bake at 350 degrees 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

Final Word

By now you know I love working with bread dough, anytime, anywhere. I used to really enjoy teaching classes to people who wanted to learn how to make bread, dinner rolls, or cinnamon rolls.

It brings me so much joy when someone asks me if I can teach them how to make bread. If you have fresh ingredients and use my recipes which I share with you, you can make bread. I promise.

These Almost Famous-Breadsticks are one more way to stretch your grocery bill. Please keep on prepping. May God bless this world. Linda

    Hey Linda! I love this idea! Where did you get the bamboo sticks? I was just thinking of making soup this week and how nice it would be to have breadsticks and yet I always fail when I try making breadsticks, so this is perfect timing!
    Is there something that I can use in place of the dill weed?

    Your blog is just beautiful. I am so glad to have met you!!!!!

      Becca, it was so fun to hangout with you! I love your blog! I could not get the Facebook link to work but I found you anyway….you can get the bamboo sticks at most kitchen type stores. They are hanging in a bag with about 12 sticks. Do you know how to do WP websites? I just shared your shirt tutorial. Do you have Pinterest or Google+? Hugs! Linda

    Hi Linda, These look so yummy! Can you use the bamboo sticks over again? Does the bread stick slip off them easily? Somewhere I have a bunch of those metal shish kabab thingies. They would work, I think, if I sprayed them with Pam or something. I am making these for supper tonight along with some homemade soup. Thanks for this recipe.

      Hi Emily I just washed them with soap and water. I let them air dry overnight and have used them several times.The shish kabobs might work as long as they don’t cook too much in the middle with the hot metal. Have fun making them! Linda

        A CUP of sugar? Really? I only used 2/3 cup and the dough is sickingly sweet.

          Hi Emily, I use the same recipe for my bread, cinnamon rolls, rolls and bread sticks. Good to know you like it with less sugar. Thanks for the tip, Linda

    These look so good. What is the amount of flour? I am assuming it to be about 6-7 cups since I am looking at your post: HowTo Make Homemade Bread For Two People. Is that correct?

      Hi Carol, oh my gosh!!! I have been working 10-12 hours a day fixing over 1100 of my posts because some of the recipes were not posted. Thanks for catching that! Thank you so much! It’s fixed now with a printable. The companies that have printable recipes keep going out of business so I have been fixing them by doing my own PDFs on each post that has a recipe. I so appreciate you telling me. Linda
